Board Options

 

There are many available choices for what board would suit your personal needs.  The orientation and thickness of the wood defines the purpose of the board.  Edge-grain boards can be made thinner, and therefore lighter and easier to move, but a thin edge-grain board will not stand up to heavy-duty chopping like an end-grain board would.  Any board that involves inlay work (especially centrally located!) will be less durable than one without additional detail work.  Select the type of board that works best for you, and then choose an inlay.

Edge-grain boards suitable for cutting baguettes and bringing them to the table.  A longer, more narrow board with a hole for hanging.  Inlays will be placed at one end so they are visible and not in the direct line of most cutting.

 

Dimensions available:

7.5" x 18" x 0.75" 

Edge-grain boards used for presentation, serving, and lighter prep work. Optional rubber non-slip feet can be added for stability, or order without the feet and use the plain side for cutting and the inlaid side for presentation.  Not intended for heavy chopping and prepwork.

 

Dimensions available:

11" x 13.5" x 0.75"

12" x 16" x 0.75"

Great for everyday use.  These boards come with finger slots on the ends to aid in picking up the board.  Inlays will be placed near the corners on one side only.  Use the plain side for prep and then flip it over and leave it on the counter as decor!  Optional perimeter trough for liquid collection available.

 

Dimensions avaiable:

12" x 16" x 1.5"

15" x 20" x 1.5"

18" x 24" x 1.5"

These are the most durable boards available.  Because end-grain oriented wood "self-heals", these boards will put up with a lot of abuse from chopping and cutting.  Each board comes with finger slots on the ends to aid in picking up the board.  Inlays will be placed near the corners on one side only.  The inlay work will be done in edge-grain orientation, and is not as durable as the end-grain cutting surface.  Optional perimeter trough for liquid collection available.

 

Dimensions available:

12" x 16" x 1.5"

15" x 20" x 1.5"

18" x 24" x 1.5"
